Geometrical properties of gluing of differential spaces. (English) Zbl 0759.58004

Continuation of the review above: In this second paper (for the first one see ibid. 25, No. 1/2, 361-384 (1992)), the author extends this theory of gluing of differential spaces to gluing of tangent bundles, differential forms and connections. Interesting applications are studied: gluing of Robertson-Walker space-times and gluing of Friedman cosmological models respectively.
